Virginia Tech vs Virginia NCAA Football Spreads, Predictions & Pick

ACC’s rivalry week features some of the longest-tenured matchups in college football, and one of the many NCAAF betting fans are eagerly waiting for is the Virginia Tech Hokies against the Virginia Cavaliers. While it’s been a tough season for the Cavaliers this year, the Hokies are battling for bowl eligibility in a tough road matchup — setting up Virginia with a chance to play spoiler to Virginia Tech’s season.

But while the Hokies are 5-6 on the season and have gone 4-3 in conference play, far better than the 3-8 mark with a 2-5 conference record for Virginia, Va Tech is only a small favorite in a pivotal must-win spot.

Virginia Tech Benefits From Key Aspect

Virginia Tech has been great against the pass this season, allowing just 166.5 yards through the air per game. But their area of struggle is defending the opposing run, allowing 158.9 yards per game. Fortunately, that matchup is a positive overall for the Hokies.

When evaluating the matchup, Virginia has been among the bottom quarter of college football in rushing offense per game, tallying just 124.7 yards per game. Its current leading rusher is Perris Jones, who has 76 carries for 293 yards and two touchdowns this season. This should bode well for the Hokies and it makes a big difference when all is said and done.

Virginia Tech vs Virginia Best Bet on Spread & Over/Under

I’m weary of touching the projected over/under on this game, as either team can put up points or completely get shut down offensively and it’s hard to trust both teams. The over/under is set at 53, and if I didn’t like the spread on this game, I’d at least make a case for the projected total.

But with that said, I like one side of this game when looking at the college football spreads. Over the past seven games, the Hokies have essentially done what you’d expect — they’ve come up short against good teams or teams that are surging while defeating teams they’re superior to, winning four games against overmatched opponents.

The Hokies are a superior group to the Cavaliers right now, and that proves true in the matchup, even on the road. But more importantly, the Hokies have everything to play for with bowl eligibility on the line. I’m taking the Hokies to cover a small spread of -3.
